The 4 Best Meditation Poses For Your Practice

There are many meditation poses you can try, but here are four of the best poses for your practice:

  1. Easy Pose (Sukhasana): This is a basic seated pose that is great for beginners. Sit cross-legged with your hands resting on your knees, palms facing up or down. This pose helps to open up your hips and lengthen your spine, making it easier to sit in meditation for longer periods of time.
  • Half Lotus (Ardha Padmasana): In this pose, one foot is placed on the opposite thigh, while the other foot remains on the floor. This pose helps to create a stable base for your seated meditation practice while also opening up your hips and increasing flexibility.
  • Full Lotus (Padmasana): In this pose, both feet are placed on the opposite thighs, with the hands resting on the knees. This pose is often associated with advanced meditators and requires a good level of flexibility. It helps to create a stable base for your practice and promotes good posture.
  • Seated Forward Bend (Paschimottanasana): This pose involves sitting with your legs straight out in front of you and bending forward, reaching for your toes. This pose helps to stretch your hamstrings, hips, and lower back, which can be especially helpful if you find it difficult to sit comfortably for long periods of time.

Remember, the most important thing is to find a meditation pose that is comfortable and allows you to sit with good posture for an extended period of time. You can also experiment with using cushions or a meditation bench to help support your spine and hips.
